About the Book
At The Medical Futurist, we don’t usually deal with investment-related news and announcements. We never share investment rounds or press releases coming from incubators and venture capital firms.
However, it doesn’t mean that we don’t keep a close eye on all these developments.
Moreover, the mission we stand by indicates that we actively support the digital health and artificial intelligence start-up community; we are in close contact with many founders and we do share news and contexts that those incubators use.
The pandemic has just made this involvement even more prominent in our work. Good digital health investments these days cannot only provide a more optimistic vision for healthcare, but can shape how we deal with COVID-19 too.
So, it was time to share how we assess the quality and promise of digital health and A.I. start-ups and technologies; how we make a decision whether to feature a report or announcement on our channels; and how in general we try to make sense of all the changes around healthcare when it comes to investments.
We shared those 24 technological trends we find the most promising by also highlighting some specific areas that are worth following. And we included good and bad examples of the past couple of years about investment stories.
I hope you will find our publication a useful addition to the toolset of investors to find the next big thing in digital health and A.I. that can make the lives of patients and the job of medical professionals better.
